America's Got Talent: Season 6, Episode 14 :: Quarter-Finals

The quarter-finals of America’s Got Talent Season 6 are under way. The first 12 acts competed live for America’s votes on Episode 14, which aired on July 12, 2011.

First up was the Miami All-Stars Dance Group. In spite of a few technical difficulties just hours before the show, the group performed flawlessly. Piers Morgan called them fabulous, fun, sexy and colorful.

Singer and pianist Dezmond Meeks received mixed reviews from the judges. Howie Mandel called his rendition of “Satisfaction” to cruise-shippy, while Piers loved that his performance was over the top.

Those Funny Little People received the first buzz of the night from Piers, who called them “very, very annoying.” Sharon Osbourne said their song and dance number was amazing and groundbreaking, and she loves that they annoy Piers.

The Fearless Flores Family stepped it up a notch by adding a third motorbike into the ball. Even though their act was spectacular and scary, Howie wonders how they’ll step it up from here.

Squonk Opera didn’t get rave reviews this week. Sharon appreciates their eccentricity, but their original song was just plain bad. Howie said their overall performance was like being on drugs.

Clearly, Piers doesn’t get the humor in J. Chris Newberg’s inappropriately funny comedy act. Howie, being a comedian himself, recognizes Chris’s talent, and admits he would buy tickets to see him.

B-boy Snap Boogie stepped it up ten notches with his creative live performance. Piers said his routine could be in Las Vegas tomorrow.

Even though Echo of Animal Gardens clammed up in Vegas, he certainly entertained the crowd in Hollywood. But Howie wonders whether the bird is a million dollar act or just a really good birthday party.

The Fiddleheads performed “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson. They received three different opinions from the judges. Piers liked the song choice, while Sharon didn’t. And Howie thought the song was too associated with MJ’s grand performances, which they didn’t deliver.

Acrobats Duo Aero bored Piers with their safe routine. Sharon didn’t like how the act had an old time vibe.

Singer Anna Graceman sang “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. Howie said that she might just be this season’s phenomenon, like classical singer Jackie Evancho was last season.

Sandou Trio Russian Bar closed the show with the most dangerous act the judges have ever seen. The woman did flips on her flexible balance beam over top of a burning bed of nails! One misstep and she’d be a goner!

On July 13, 2011, America’s votes sent Anna Graceman, Sandou Trio Russian Bar, Snap Boogie and, thanks to the judges, the Miami All-Stars onto the semi-finals.
